tar ball installation issues.


Ok so i have looked at probably 6 different guides. 2 or 3 of which have been on here, and still no luck.

I am trying to install "armitage022211.tgz"

I have tried doing xzf (or whatever it is, sorry not looking at the guide right now lol). Many other things as well.

Any ideas? If you do point me to a guide i will quickly tell you if i have tried it or not.

By the way, here are some errors i get:


bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

plenty of other errors when trying to unpack the tarball as well.

To unpack a file like "armitage022211.tgz" you will have to run the following:

Code:
tar zxvf armitage022211.tgz
If that does not work, then run the following:

Code:
gunzip armitage022211.tgz
tar xvf armitage022211.tar    (or whatever the extension is named)
If still no luck, then most likely the file is corrupted.

Cheers,

Josh

And to also add to that, after you extract the contents, most likely everything will be stored within a directory. You will have to cd into the directory to run ./configure, make, and make install.

Next time, please read a guide on basic linux commands. Not being mean at all about this, but cd is a basic command, and is essential to know when working with linux. Here is a guide I found randomly on google:

Good luck, and cheers.

You need to cd to the new created directory first
Did you read the readme file?

Kind regards

Simply : tar xvf armitage022211.tgz && cd armitage/ && sh armitage.sh
( java -jar armitage.jar :
Will also start the application, but please start with reading the Manual.)
